DICE working on 'other secret projects'

DICE, the EA-owned studio best known for the Battlefield series, is working on "other secret projects," according to General Manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson.

"We do have other secret projects that I can't talk about right now," said Troedsson during a studio tour with GameInformer. Obviously, he didn't elaborate further. If he'd said "that I can talk about right now," we'd probably all have a bunch of exciting news to mull over, but we don't. We do have speculation, though!

DICE's next major release is Battlefield 3 - another helping of its war FPS bread and butter - but it's also known for the 2008 cult-hit Mirror's Edge, the multiplayer portion of last year's Medal of Honor reboot, and its collaboration with Criterion Games on Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.

The rumors surrounding the possibility of a Mirror's Edge sequel seem to suggest that the game is neither in development nor off the table, but we doubt that it has solidified enough to be one of the studio's current 'secret projects.' Last week's announcement that a Medal of Honor sequel is underway, however, could mean that DICE is pitching in on another round of MoH multiplayer.

Aside from that, we have no idea. Another Bad Company, perhaps? New DLC? What do you think the studio is, or should be, up to?

    Obviously another bad company since the other left the player on 'cliffhanger'.

    I hope it's more Bad Company 1 maps. I really want to see Final Ignition, End of the Line (please do this!), and Acta Non Verba.

    EA already shot down ME 2 so its HIGHLY likely that it's not that. My guess is more BC2 DLC to stem the outcry for Battlefield 3. Also, HOYLBALLSBATTLEFIELD3.NICE.

    Please, just let it be Mirror's Edge 2! Nuff said.

    Mirrors Edge 2 Please!

    I don't think it's Mirror's Edge 2, as much as I want it to be. Knowing DICE it should be good though.

    Yes, what they should be doing and what they are doing could be entirely different. It should be Mirror's Edge, no question. If they learn from the mistakes of the first one, the second could be one of the best games of this generation.

    Big 'ol update to Battlefield Heroes maybe?

    They should be making Mirror's Edge, but I expect it'll be some dreary modern shooter

    another mirrors edge would be great, just add multiplayer to the next one, would be interesting seeing "runners" jumping of buildings shooting at each other
